public interface GlobalEventListener

The listener interface for receiving global events. Arbitrary applications may use global events for inter-process communication (IPC). The BlackBerry OS can also generate global events, such as those defined by the ServiceBook API. See the BlackBerry Application Developer Guide Volume 2: Advanced Topics for more information on ServiceBook global events.

Method Detail

eventOccurred

public void eventOccurred(long guid,
                          int data0,
                          int data1,
                          Object object0,
                          Object object1)
Invoked when the specified global event occurred.

The eventOccurred method provides two object parameters and two integer parameters for supplying details about the event itself. The developer determines how the parameters will be used.

For example, if the event corresponded to sending or receiving a mail message, the object0 parameter might specify the mail message itself, while the data0 parameter might specify the identification details of the message, such as an address value.

Parameters:
guid - The GUID of the event.
data0 - Integer value specifying information associated with the event.
data1 - Integer value specifying information associated with the event.
object0 - Object specifying information associated with the event.
object1 - Object specifying information associated with the event.
